A web application firewall (WAF) is an application firewall that is deployed via a proxy and used for monitoring the network traffic on web-enabled applications. These hardware- or software-based solutions are used for filtering and blocking HTTP traffic to and from a web application in an attempt to prevent attacks that may include file inclusion, cross-site forgery, SQL injection, cross-site scripting and improper system configuration. These firewalls assist in establishing a secure barrier between the computer and the external environment. They are also essential in filtering an information source through the process of whitelisting and/or blacklisting.
